Summary: Okay, ever since I've seen this game on sale on steam last year, I've always been curious about trying it out. But after skimming through reviews and opinions about it, I always decided it's not worth wasting $20-30 on a game I could hate.
Summary: If you love the cathartic, "find yellow punctuation marks, click stuff, get loot" format of WoW-like MMO's, you will find a good amount of that in the Secret World. However, there are also quests that make you think outside of the box and look at the game world in unique ways.
Summary: Reading through strats and with my playtime, I get the vibe of WoW between BT and slightly pre-ICC(formulas for stats, item synergies, ability flexibility). Looks very nice, gave me BSODs for a while when AC4:Black Flag would run perfectly so it's not a machine stat issue.
Summary: The game-play sometimes is difficult because the quest our not easy to understand, many times you will need to search on the Internet for the information related to the quest, the game has an in browser to help you with that.
Summary: Well, I was going to wait longer (bought the game on July 2), but, as I said, I feel compelled to give a snap review. My wife and I bought this game while the digital download was on sale for ten bucks. That's like..
Summary: Ill start with the negatives to get them out of the way. It has good amount of bugs. your character may run around with hands out like he is holding the weapon while its still on you characters back soemtimes.
Summary: It is disappointing that The Secret World received such poor sales, the game really deserves better. Great story, fun gameplay, and an intuitive leveling system. The Secret World is a coupling of horror and Cthulhu psychological thriller with a lot of conspiracy thrown in for good measure.
Summary: UPDATE, 12/14/12: Once purchased, The Secret World is now FREE TO PLAY: No Subscription Required. Players of Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games are used to a certain amount of consistency.
